Teaching Life Lessons

| CA, USA | Learning | October 21, 2014

(I am an aide at an elementary school, and I sometimes have recess duty during primary recess. One of the third graders comes up to me and talks to me like she usually does. She likes to ask me what I want to be when I grow up… but today it’s a little different.)

Third Grader: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

(I am about to answer ‘author’ like usual, but she keeps talking.)

Third Grader: “And more than an author.”

Me: “Oh, well, there’s not much more I want to be than author! Except maybe a millionaire so I can buy a nice house.”

Third Grader: “Then why are you teaching?”
